I Just Do Not Know?

This is what shows up regarding a Poll on left/front of Home.

Was you FD failier on an unopened FD, Opened FD or rebuilt FD?

Is this the question? Did your final drive failure occur on a new final drive, used final drive , or rebuilt final drive? I honestly don't know what the poll is asking?

I had the bearing failure caught at 28000+ mile by the dealer. Then at about 31000 mile the rear failed about 40 mile from home. This time the ring and pinion gears went south. BMW reimbursed for the new rear, but I had to pay the labor charge.

I took about 3 months for BMW to make the decision to cover the replacement cost.

I know that every one talks about the bearing failing. The gears were sheared off.

So I hope this was alone failure.
